"Containing an Introductory essay, a section on Theories of Japanese politics, and around 250 A-Z entries, the Dictionary of the Modern Politics of Japan remedies this imbalance and answers the need for an accessible work of reference bringing together information and authoritative analysis on all aspects of the politics of Japan and the Japanese political system." "Written by a leading academic authority and commentator on the domestic and international politics of Japan, the Dictionary provides comprehensive coverage of: prime ministers, party leaders and important politicians; political parties and other political bodies; agencies of central government and the judicial and electoral systems; political crises, episodes and scandals; influential interest groups, such as those representing industry, commerce, the professions, agriculture, consumers, women, etc; the constitution and constitutional issues, including the peace clause; and areas of government policy." "Including a full and annotated bibliography to guide the user to further reading, the entries are thoroughly cross-referenced and indexed, and are supplemented with maps, graphs and tables, to ensure that the Dictionary of the Modern Politics of Japan is essential reading for all scholars and students of the politics and international relations of Japan. It is also destined to become a vital resource for journalists, diplomats and others with an interest in the region."--Jacket

14 editions published between 1988 and 1996 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past thirty years Japan has shown that it is a highly dynamic society, and its economic policy-making has often astonished the world.

Governing Japan : divided politics in a major economy by J. A. A Stockwin( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The third edition of Governing Japan provides a comprehensive introduction to Japanese political institutions, processes and culture, taking account of the remarkable changes of recent years. The author makes the often confusing Japanese political system comprehensible to the outside observer. He examines Japan's politics in light of its cultural and historical situation whilst relating Japan's experience to the rest of the world." "The author analyses the degrees of recent reform in the Japanese political system and argues that moves towards political change in the 1990s reflect a deep malaise in politics, economy and society. Governing Japan provides students with an invaluable guide to this transitional period in Japanese politics and the problems and potential solutions that lie ahead."--Jacket
Japan's modern history, 1857-1937 : a new political narrative by Junji Banno( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the course of the period 1857 to 1937 in Japan, six distinct stages can be identified as the country moved from Shogun rule and its subsequent overthrow, from industrialisation and investment to the Meiji Constitution and then from Taisha democracy to Showa fascism. In this book, Junji Banno stresses the mutual relationships between each period, and to this end renames then accordingly: the age of reform; age of revolution; age of construction; age of management; age of reorganisation; and age of crisis. Following this model, the book covers eighty years of history in Japan, focusing on political history and foreign relations, with extensive material also on economic development and foreign influences on political institutions and practices. Based on extensive archival research, Japan's Modern History considers synoptically the key trends and their significance over the period of 1857 to 1937. In turn, it presents in detail fascinating information on many of the main leaders and other significant figures, with extensive quotations from their writings, letters and diaries. This book is a translation into English of a major work of scholarship by a leading historian of modern Japan, and may be considered the apex of Junji Banno's work in the field. As such, it will be of great interest to students and scholars of both Japanese history and history more broadly"--

The Abe experiment and the future of Japan : don't repeat history by Junji Banno( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With an author's foreword written on the day that the Abe cabinet decided to 'revise the Japanese Constitution by reinterpretation' (Tuesday, 1 July 2014), this timely examination of Japan's post-war history by two leading historians committed to democratic politics is highly instructive and prompts serious reflection by anyone concerned with the future of Japan."--Dust jacket
Rethinking Japan : the politics of contested nationalism by J. A. A Stockwin( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors argue that with the election of the Abe Government in December 2012, Japanese politics has entered a radically new phase they describe as the "2012 Political System." The system began with the return to power of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), after three years in opposition, but in a much stronger electoral position than previous LDP-based administrations in earlier decades. Moreover, with the decline of previously endemic intra-party factionalism, the LDP has united around an essentially nationalist agenda never absent from the party's ranks, but in the past was generally blocked, or modified, by factions of more liberal persuasion. Opposition weakness following the severe defeat of the Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) administration in 2012 has also enabled the Abe Government to establish a political stability largely lacking since the 1990s
Collected writings of J.A.A. Stockwin by J. A. A Stockwin( )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume opens with a detailed autobiographical sketch of the author's original 'meeting with Japan', which began in 1961after taking up a post at ANU, Canberra (the result of a successful response to an advert in the Manchester Guardian). After twenty-one years in Australia, Arthur Stockwin moved back to the UK to take the chair of the then recently-established Nissan Institute of Japanese Studies. He was to be in post there also for twenty one years, his retirement coinciding with publication of his Dictionary of the Modern Politics of Japan (Routledge, 2003)
The establishment of the Japanese constitutional system by Junji Banno( )

8 editions published between 1971 and 1995 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When it was first published in Japan, The Establishment of the Japanese Constitutional System was immediately recognised by modern Japanese historians as a work of acute and original analysis. Based largely on contemporary documents, diaries and letters, it provides an invaluable background to understanding the nature of relations between parliament, bureaucrats and leaders of political cliques in Japan, relations which persist to this day."--BOOK JACKET. "The Establishment of the Japanese Constitutional System is an authoritative account of the establishment of constitutional government in Japan during the turbulent decade of the 1890s. An intensely 'political' story, full of power struggles and the clash of interests, it tells how political experience was accumulated by government leaders and party politicians in these formative years."--BOOK JACKET. "Between 1868 and 1890 the Meiji government wielded despotic power, and was able to pursue its military and industrial policies virtually unchallenged. After the Diet was established, however, the government found its policies challenged by the 'popular parties' which demanded that government expenditure and the burden of tax on farmers be decreased. Junji Banno shows how, unexpectedly, the popular parties discovered in the constitution the means of challenging the government and, although unable to win power themselves, they found they were well able to force a stalemate. By 1900, however, one of the popular parties had given up its demand for tax reduction and begun to support the government policy of industrialisation, while one faction of the government had changed its attitude towards the popular parties."--BOOK JACKET. "The author describes how these two factions from different sides of the political divide came together to form Rikken Seiyukai--a pragmatic political party--and explains why such a drastic change in basic attitudes took place during the first decade of Japanese parliamentary politics."--Jacket
The great transformation of Japanese capitalism by Sébastien Lechevalier( )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1980s the performance of Japan's economy was an international success story, and led many economists suggest that the 1990s would be a Japanese decade. Today however, the dominant view today is that Japan is inescapably on a downward slope. Rather than focusing on the evolution of the performance of Japanese capitalism, this book reflects on the changes that it has experienced over the past 30 years, and presents a comprehensive analysis of the great transformation of Japanese capitalism from the heights of the 1980s, through the lost decades of the 1990s, and well into the 21st century. This book posits an alternative analysis of the Japanese economic trajectory since the early 1980s, and argues that whereas policies inspired by neo-liberalism have been presented as a solution to the Japanese crisis, these policies have in fact been one of the causes of the problems that Japan has faced over the past thirty years. Crucially, this book seeks to understand the institutional and organisational changes that have characterised Japanese capitalism since the 1980s, and to highlight in comparative perspective, with reference to the 'neo-liberal moment', the nature of the transformation of Japanese capitalism. Indeed, the arguments presented in this book go well beyond Japan itself, and examine the diversity of capitalism, notably in continental Europe, which has experienced problems which in many ways are also comparable to those of Japan. The Great Transformation of Japanese Capitalism will appeal to students and scholars of both Japanese politics and economics, as well as those interested in comparative political economy"
